Movie Reviews

Borge is great, but this product is less than it could have
Chad Oberholtzer | Boalsburg, PA, USA | 09/10/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I love Victor Borge. I had the privilege to see him live in the early 1990's when I was a teenager, and it was truly one of the most memorable performances that I have ever witnessed. What a magnificent performer, a truly brilliant pianist and a hysterical comedian!!

Unfortunately, this disc by PBS doesn't fully capture the magic of Borge. It alternates back and forth from narrated documentary footage about his life to concert footage from throughout his career. I was disappointed by the quality of some of the footage, particularly the audio from some of the earlier recordings. And I was disappointed that so many of the clips were very truncated. It resulted in a rather choppy and uneven experience.

To be fair, my family laughed a lot as we watched this disc. Many of Borge's classic routines are included, and if you're unfamiliar with Borge, this would serve as a decent introduction. The biographical information is interesting, and the concert footage is wonderful. However, I would recommend straight concert footage such as "The Best of Victor Borge Act One and Two" instead to better capture the magic of Borge's genius."
